Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

 (2003)

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A decade has passed since John Connor helped prevent Judgment Day and save mankind from mass destruction. Now, 25, Connor lives "off the grid" - no home, no credit cards, no cell phone and no job. No record of his existence. No way he can be traced by Skynet - the highly developed network of machines that once tried to kill him and wage war on humanity. Until?out of the shadows of the future steps the T-X, Skynet's most sophisticated cyborg killing machine yet. Sent back through time to complete the job left unfinished by her predecessor, the T-1000, this machine is as relentless as her human guise is beautiful. Now Connor's only hope for survival is the Terminator, his mysterious former assassin. Together, they must triumph over the technologically superior T-X and forestall the looming threat of Judgment Day?or face the apocalypse and the fall of civilization as we know it.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines's initial Blu-ray release was notable for a bugaboo that displayed a 1080i image for the primary feature but displayed the proper 1080p image only in conjunction with the included picture-in-picture supplement. Warner soon thereafter issued a corrected pressing. At this time, it appears that all new stock at Amazon.com is the 1080p transfer, but extra-nervous buyers can verify the corrected pressing through the UPC code "883929016938." Now, as to Warner's 1080p transfer, it's good, but not quite elite. Black levels fluctuate between appearing a little too heavy-handed in spots, revealing a fair bit of evident crush, but looking inky and sturdy in other scenes; the beginning of the movie looks particularly overwhelmed by crush. The 1080p transfer does retain a light layer of film grain, but the image is nevertheless a hair soft throughout and detailing generally ranges between "adequate" and "good," favoring the latter. Facial textures are nicely intricate, but a somewhat flat overall image doesn't allow the smaller nuanced details to spring to life. Colors are steady, but this isn't exactly a vibrant movie. The cemetery shootout midway through the film features lavish greens, but there's otherwise little in the way of bright colors in the film; even the Terminatrix's maroon-colored outfit doesn't jump off the screen in suitably bright scenes. Flesh tones tend to favor a slightly warm shade. The transfer is technically strong, featuring only an inconsequential amount of banding and no perceptible blocking. A few random white speckles do appear from time to time. This transfer could stand to be a little less soft and show a little more detail, but for the most part it's a solid, if unspectacular, Blu-ray image.


Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

While the 1080p/1080i mix-up has been corrected for this release, Warner chose not to take advantage of the redo to include the lossless soundtrack Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines deserves. Indeed, this release features the same carryover Dolby Digital 5.1 track as its mixed-up predecessor, but the good news is that as far as lossy soundtracks go this is one of the best in the business. It belts out every action scene with positive authority, delivering not only a tight and potent low end but throwing out surround information like there's no tomorrow. The mix is well-engineered, too, so the heavy surround usage isn't just for oohs and aahs. Directional effects enjoy pinpoint placement and control, imaging is excellent, and everything sounds like it is right where it needs to be. Music is the biggest loser, sounding a little underpowered at times, but the track more than makes up for that shortcoming with that prodigious use of the entire soundstage in creating devastatingly realistic and highly enjoyable action sound effects. Whether the thump of a shotgun, the zipping of missiles through the soundstage, or the constant barrage of automatic weapons fire, Warner's track delivers a sustained and more-than-competent deluge of Action movie goodness. Dialogue, no surprise, is centered, focused, and always crisp. It might be blasphemy to call a Blu-ray lossy soundtrack as "satisfying," but this one is just that. It could be better, sure, and a point off the top for no lossless options, but this certainly isn't a fiasco of epic proportions.
